Le Tour de France is in Haute-Savoie today! Unfortunately, it’s not coming to Annecy, but the route is northeast of here. The cyclists just went through Bonneville and they will end in Le Grand Bornand, a popular ski destination.
Today is also la fête nationale (NOT independence day, even though many Anglophones call it that). The fireworks in our town were last night though, as only the large cities have fireworks on the actual 14th.
